Triumph Group is planning to build a $1.71 billion PV glass factory in Suqian City, Jiangsu Province. Longi has maintained unchanged the prices of its wafers for July.
The UAE-based developer wants to build several projects at unspecified locations in central and southern Iraq.
According to a new study from a German-Swedish research group, conventional incentives such as renewable portfolio standards, feed-in tariffs or feed-in premium payments may likely lead to a price cannibalisation scenario for wind and solar. CO2 pricing, instead, is considered an efficient tool to maintain their market value high enough to ensure new investments. However, a total system cost approach, rather than an LCOE perspective, is needed to understand the strong dependence of market value on policy choice.
The Middle East, and the Gulf in particular, has been home to record low solar tariffs in recent years. Major projects are being awarded via tenders, with prices gradually closing in on a remarkable 1 USDct/kWh. Of course, this is no coincidence due to the region’s favorable solar conditions: availability of cheap and sunny desert land, low labor costs, cheap project financing, supportive tax regimes, large projects benefitting from economies of scale, well designed tender structures, and decreasing PV component prices.
Scientists in Switzerland demonstrated a new type of nanoscale doping for perovskite solar cells. By both improving stability and reducing the chance of the cells leaking any toxic lead into the environment, the discovery addresses two of the largest remaining challenges to the development of the promising class of cell materials.
Huawei launched its All-Scene FusionSolar + Storage Solution at this year’s SNEC Expo 2021. In the following week, it announced a new business unit, Huawei Digital Power Technology. pv magazine spoke with Chen Guoguang, President of Huawei Smart PV to discover the company’s strategy and vision for the future of solar PV.
The new hybrid inverter series has an efficiency of up to 98.2% and a European efficiency of up to 97.4%. The device offers multiple connections with a maximum of 10 units in parallel to expand the AC output power.
The Indian government’s efforts to restrict PV equipment imports and expand domestic manufacturing are starting to bear fruit.
Swiss researchers sought for the first time to replace phenylethylammonium (PEA) with benzodithiophene (BDT) in cations for perovskite cells. The latter showed improved stability and ensured a power conversion efficiency that was 1% higher than that of its counterpart.
